Delta.

semble is an exciting rock band with a full horn section that brings

a diverse combination of musical stylings to the concert stage.

Making his debut at the festival is Columbus-based Keith T-Bone

Colbert, boasting a musical style that is an evolution of modern blues

with a firm foundation inspired by the blues styles of Texas, Chicago

and the Delta. Influenced by artists like Robert Johnson, Howling

Wolf, B.B. King and Stevie Ray Vaughan, Colbert’s music is a slow

rev mixing traditional riffs with a modern flair. He will take the

stage just in time for the dinner hour at 5:30 p.m.

The soulful and energetic Doug Hart Band is making its second

appearance at the festival. The Dayton-based group plays original

material along with the songs you know and love. It’s bluesy, it’s

rock. It’s a versatile blend, and it begins at 7:15 p.m.

Hot cars and cool art at the Rib and Jazz Festival

Chalk artists will bring their talent back

to the London Rib and Jazz Festival this

year, and the art is much more elaborate

than your childhood hopscotch game.

Four chalk artists from the organization

ChalkStix will draw their masterpieces on

East Second Street during the first day of

26 E. High St., London, OH

(740) 845-0745

127 E. Main St., W. Jefferson, OH

(614) 379-5407

the two-day festival. Each artist will draw

their own 8x8-foot drawing.

The public can watch the artists in action

beginning at about 9 a.m. Aug 3. The festival

continues on Aug. 4.

“My favorite question I get asked is,

‘What happens when you're done?’ My answer

is always the same: ‘It fades or gets

washed away by the rain,’ ” said Jennifer

Russell, a founding member of ChalkStix

and a member of the Ohio Chalk Art Guild.

“Street painting is temporary, but for a

minute it can be the most beautiful thing

you see that day. I think that’s why I fell in

love with it. Nothing is better than creating

art outside on a beautiful day.”

After artists paint the streets on Friday

afternoon, the festival’s cornhole tournament

will take place in the evening. The

tournament will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.

RIB & JAZZ

Continued from page 1

on West Second Street. Participants should

bring their own partner. Entry fee is $20 per

team.

The tournament is double elimination

with the winning team taking home $100

and trophies. Second place earns $50, and

third place gets their money back.

There is no early registration this year.

Sign up just before the tournament begins

at 5:30 p.m. The cut-off to sign-up will be at

6:15 p.m.

The popular London Rib & Jazz Festival

car show will take place on Saturday. The

show, sponsored by Wilson’s Printing &

Graphics, will be on East and West Second

streets from 5 to 8 p.m., with awards at

8:15.

The 2018 car show attracted more than

125 vehicles. Registration takes place from

2 to 5 p.m. Entry fee is $10.

Headlining the first night of the festival is the Noah Wotherspoon

Band, taking the stage at 9 p.m. Wotherspoon, of Cincinnati, has

been immersed in the blues and mesmerizing audiences with his

soulful guitar playing since he was a teenager. In 2015, he received

the Best Guitarist Award at the International Blues Challenge, and

the band placed second in the finals.

Saturday, Aug. 3

Old School Union will kick off Saturday’s music lineup at 12:15

p.m. and set the streets on fire. Lead singer Darchelle Williams has

been described as “the best kept secret in Columbus,” while band

members have played with greats such as James Brown, The Temptations

and Rick James, to name a few.

Playing their own unique Americana sound at 2 p.m. is the Charlotte

West Band, featuring Nathan Traver. Founding members Reagan

Godlewski and Nathan Travis met as commercial music majors

at Nashville’s Belmont University. From the start, they aligned on

their vision to write and perform music, blending elements from

their backgrounds in the blues with roots rock and classic country.

They have recruited a band of talented, like-minded musicians to

flesh out their sound and provide a live jam experience that complements

their studio recordings.

At 3:45 p.m., get ready to feel like you’re in church for the return

of festival favorite, InnerVision. Led by two life-long friends who

both lost their vision as infants but found God-given musical abilities

as young children, this Westerville-based group’s set list includes

contemporary Christian music, radio favorites and classics

such as “At Last” and “Unchain My Heart.”

Talented soloist Micah Kesselring will fill the festival with a big

sound, beginning at 5:30 p.m. Raised in the Appalachia foothills of

southeastern Ohio, Kesselring made his way onto the Columbus

blues music scene as a teen. He soon made his way to Memphis for

the International Blues Challenge and has been a regular finalist

on the scene since.

Enjoy the after-dinner hour at 7:15 p.m. with the talent of the

blues-influenced Blue Cats. The veteran four-man group performs

energy intensive original arrangements of favorites from their musical

hip pockets. Members have played with a wide variety of national

acts, including James Brown, Albert King, Linda Ronstadt,

Bobby Blue Bland, Johnny Paycheck and Luther Allison.

Closing out the festival is the Hadden Sayers Band. A Texas native,

Sayers is just as comfortable on a massive festival stage with

a Stratocaster in his hands as he is strumming an acoustic guitar

in your living room. Sayers and his band are masters of their instruments,

but his passionate songwriting twists rock, blues and

soul into something completely fresh. This band will keep festival

goers on their feet from 9 to 10:30 p.m.

Superheroes on the run

It will be the same Superhero fun but

with a different route and time this year as

the 5K returns to the London Rib & Jazz

Festival.

The London Kiwanis Club has accepted

the torch from Access Cowling to organize

the Superhero Run, Walk & Roll 5K. This

will be the third year for the family-friendly

run, originally started as a fundraiser for

improvements at Cowling Park.

The race will take place at 7 p.m. Aug. 2,

a change from the Saturday morning start

time. Additionally, participants will begin

and end in the heart of the festival as before,

but instead run along the bike trail.

London Kiwanis President Zahid Siddiqi

said the non-profit “couldn’t resist” the opportunity

to take over a race coinciding with

the festival.

“The race is a great deal of fun for all

types of runners–serious road racers, casual

runners, walkers and even those with

disabilities,” he said. “We hope there is excellent

turnout for the race, which we hope

will also boost attendance for the festival.

Registration cost is $30 and includes a T-

shirt.

Proceeds benefit the work of the London

Kiwanis Club, which donates thousands of

dollars each year to organizations such as

the London Area Baseball Council, Raider

Rack and London Fireworks. Additionally,

the club provides scholarships to highschoolers

at London and Madison-Plains,

donates backpacks stuffed with school supplies,

funds the London Kiwanis Soccer

League, and organizes the annual Easter

Egg Hunt at Cowling Park, among other activities.

Volunteers dressed as superheroes will

once again line the route. Medals will be

awarded for the winners in each age group.

Register for the race at RunSignUp.com

(search for London Jazz & Ribfest 5K).

Forms can also be picked up from a member

of the London Kiwanis or at Wilson’s Printing

and Graphics, 158 S. Main St., London.

Registration must be completed by July

28 to secure a T-shirt.

Science festival in London

Festival is a collaboration

with governments, state,

businesses, education,

non-profits and COSI

By Andrew Garrett

Staff Writer

London will be one of six central Ohio

cities to play host for events making up the

2020 COSI Science Festival.

London Mayor Patrick Closser attended

a celebration at the science and industry

center on July 9 - where he joined the mayors

of Marysville, Delaware, Circleville,

Heath, and Pickerington on stage - where it

was announced that each city was chosen as

a partner for the event.

A collaboration between local municipalities,

the state of Ohio, businesses such as

Battelle, non-profits, and education partners,

the 2020 COSI Science Festival will be

one of the largest science, technology, engineering,

and math (STEM) family-friendly

events in Ohio history, Closser said. The

festival will be free for any Ohioan.

A goal of the festival is to plant the seed

for a love of STEM studies in the minds of

youths and help develop a current and future

STEM workforce pipeline for Ohio.

The festival will be held in early May

2020 over four key dates, but will feature

STEM events in the community throughout

the year for central Ohio, including London,

Closser said. Currently, the events or exhibits

which London will specifically host

have not been announced, but last year’s interactive

events included everything from a

chemistry-themed scavenger hunt, to a special

exhibition presented by NASA.

The festival will culminate in an event

called the Big Science Celebration and will

be held on a Saturday at the Scioto Peninsula

surrounding COSI. It will have more

than 130 different booths featuring handson,

experiential learning opportunities and

activities.

Other news

•The London Rib and JazzFest is scheduled

for Aug. 2 and Aug.3. The festival runs

from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. each day.

•Council adopted legislation that allows

for the city’s safety service director approval

to enter into an agreement by which the city

of London will pay West Jefferson $112,000

per year for building inspection services.

The city recently terminated its agreement

with Clark County, which was performing

the same services for the “same deal,” according

to Closser.

According to Closser, the contract should

continue to pay for itself with permit fees

and the savings from not having to pay

salaries and benefits as would be the case

were the city to have its own department.

• Sue Mosier introduced herself as the

city’s new treasurer. Appointed by the Republican

Central Committee, Mosier takes

the place of former treasurer Jason

Schwaderer. A life-long Madison County

resident, she has lived in London for over

40 years. Mosier is recently retired from her

position as Child Support Administrator at

The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family

Services. Prior to that, she worked for

Huntington Bank for 15 years, where she

advanced to assistant branch manager and

worked in mortgage lending. Mosier took

the oath for the office on July 3.

Work’s payoff can come in unexpected form

Job satisfaction and long-term career goals were not on the mind

of my mother as a 14-year-old graduate of the Austrian school system

looking for employment in post-World War II Vienna.

Yes, age 14 is the graduation age (they do things differently in

Europe) and no, it was not an easy task to find a job amid the ruin

and rubble of a city recovering from the bombing brought about by

the war.

Going shop-to-shop, she asked, inquired and begged for a position

to earn money to help her family, not unlike thousands of other

teenagers and adults displaced by years of Nazi and Russian occupation.

She finally found employment–on a production line stuffing cotton

into stainless steel lighters. Later she sold knives at festivals

to country folk who believed the company’s “will never lose its

sharpness” hype, then served travelers at an outdoor restaurant,

often working 80 hours a week.

My mother was 19 when four nations patrolled quadrants of the

city. My father was serving in the Army at the time and, while it

was not love at first sight–my mother was, and still is, an independent

woman–they fell in love and got married.

After coming to America, getting settled and raising me, my

mother went back to work at a restaurant on Parsons Avenue in

Columbus near a railroad complex.

You might not think of Parsons Avenue as a destination spot for

fine dining. (The building is still there today, albeit boarded up and

in a terrible state of disrepair.) But at one time, Johnson’s Restaurant

served the movers and shakers of Columbus, including mayors,

lawyers and a young Jack Nicklaus.

Tables were covered in linen, well-maintained fish tanks functioned

as living portraits of sea life, and a special Japanese-themed

room featured low-level seating. Waitresses like my mother were

dressed in white uniforms and knew many of the customers by

name, always addressing them formally as Mr. or Mrs.

While the restaurant still served railroad workers during the afternoon

rush at a lunch counter on the opposite side of the building,

dimmed lighting and elevated seating areas were hallmarks of the

finer dining area.

Although located outside of the downtown loop, Johnson’s was

still considered one of the city’s “fancier” establishments and tips

reflected that status. It was not uncommon for my mother to receive

a $3 tip, considered high for the time.

This brings me to the crux of my story.

I asked my mother the other

day, “What was the best tip you

ever received while working as a

waitress?” Her response surprised

me. “25 cents.”

She told me that one evening a couple came in. The

man was dressed in clean, but older overalls and the

wife was dressed in a plain, but pressed dress.

She was timidly clutching a small handbag and a

handkerchief.

They were seated, looked over the menu and selected

the most inexpensive meal–ham steak, which was obviously

an extravagant dinner for them.

While their clothing was in stark contrast to diners

around them, my mother realized this was a special

outing for the couple and still treated them with the

same care and attention as her regular customers.

When they were finished, the man called my mother

over.

He turned to his wife and said, “See, I told you I was

places

Linda Dillman

going to bring you to a nice place.”

He then turned to my mother

and thanked her before handing

her the quarter and saying, “Here,

honey, this is for you.”

When I heard this story, I

cried. My mother did, as well.

It amazed me that here was a

woman who lived through a war,

lean times trying to find a job, a

move across the ocean and employment

in the service industry

with a foreign accent, but her best

memory of work was a 25-cent tip.

My mother made the day for

that couple, but they gave her a

memory for a lifetime.

Linda Dillman is a Messenger staff writer.

Creature film is back with some bite

Want to see apex predators on the big screen? Are

you not interested in watching them singing and dancing

and, you know, getting along with others? If so,

might I suggest the recently released “Crawl” to whet

your ravenous appetite?

If you’re like me, you miss the abundance of mindless

creature features that filled the summer blockbuster

slate in the 1990s and early 2000s. These films were

fun, simple, stupid and exactly what you wanted to see

during these long and hot months.

Unfortunately, like most species on this planet, this

genre became endangered and then practically extinct

due to human activity, or inactivity to be more precise,

at the box office. But unlike the former, powerful people

in charge may be looking to bring the latter back to life,

a welcome respite from the constant stream of comic

book adaptations, sequels and reboots. Though some

the reel deal

Dedra Cordle

may

not be thrilled with this potential bit of news, I say it is

cause for a generic celebration. Let the creature feature

reign!

In “Crawl,” the primary focus is on a competitive

swimmer named Haley Keller (Kaya Scodelario) and

her strained relationship with her father Dale (Barry

Pepper). For reasons not well explained, these two had

a falling out several years ago and have been in minimal

contact since despite living a short distance away.

accident. He graduated from Madison-

Plains High School in May and was active

in the community. He participated on the

high school football team, the National Future

CREATURE

Continued from page 1

After a disastrous swim meet that could

imperil her scholarship at the University of

Florida, Haley is given two more pieces of

bad news: the first is that the strong tropical

storm has turned into a Category 5 hurricane

and the second is that her sister has

not heard from their father in days.

Despite knowing the perils of not getting

out of dodge during a weather event of that

magnitude, Haley travels back to their

hometown to search for their missing father.

When she arrives at his last known

residence, she finds their beloved dog Sugar

(Cso-Cso) frightened and all alone. Knowing

that he would not willingly leave the

pet behind, she takes the pooch with her to

their childhood home where they discover

his truck, tool belt and phone, but no estranged

father.

With a growing sense of unease, Haley

searches the house until the only place left

is their labyrinthine crawl space. Navigating

its dark curves, errant wiring and the

occasional rat and spider, she quite literally

stumbles upon the body of her partially

mauled and unconscious father. Not knowing

what caused his injuries, she uses a

makeshift tarp to try to drag him to safety.

But just as they nearly reach the stairway

to safe haven, a massive alligator strikes

from the shadows, leaving the humans

trapped in a maze of darkness that is

quickly being flooded with water.

Though the setting for this film is a

dank crawl space filled with murky water,

it isn’t hard to see the action that is taking

place: the use of light from director Alexandre

Aja (of “Piranha 3D” fame) and cinematographer

Maxime Alexandre put bigger

budget action films to shame. With this

usage, the trickery of light, it creates a

sense of heightened tension as the alligator

could literally be lurking anywhere. That is

not to mention the use of measuring tapes

as an awakened Dale uses it to calculate

how fast the water is rising, or him slipping

back into coach mode as he tries to coax his

daughter to make a swim for safety.

Like the creature feature films of the

past, and unlike the lesser versions on

SyFy, you find yourself rooting for these

characters to succeed and survive despite

their long odds. And a bonus is that they

don’t make too many stupid decisions unlike

their counterparts of yore.

So if you’re looking for something fun

and original and straightforward to see this

summer, consider “Crawl” as an option. It’s

a lean film that features decent jump

scares, an excellent use of light, and it constantly

taps into the fear of what is lurking

beneath the water’s surface or around any

dark corner.

Wally Biernacki and his partner, Lis Balson, both from Orono (Ontario-Canada) enjoy

sharing the history of steam engines and threshing machines. They travel throughout

Canada and the U.S. educating the public about Biernacki’s quarter-scale Case traction

steam engine and threshing machine.

By Theresa Hennis

Staff Writer

Preserving the past for the education of

the future is the new motto adopted by the

Miami Valley Steam Threshers Association

(MVSTA). Exhibitors at the 70th annual

show and reunion held July 18 - 21 at Pastime

Park in Plain City enjoyed educating

the public about everything steam.

MVSTA President, Gary Gallimore,

shared some history about the show.

“On a farm north of Troy, Ohio, half a

dozen guys got their equipment out and

played around with it, and that’s how it all

began,” he said.

Having fun with farm equipment is what

brings Unionville Center resident and exhibitor

Toni Ankrom to the show every year.

“I’ve been coming to the steam threshers

show since I was 12, when it was at the

Madison County Fairgrounds,” said

Ankrom. “Now I’m bringing my daughter,

Baleigh.”

The family’s 1940 John Deere H tractor

turned heads.

“When we bought the tractor, we asked

Baleigh what color she wanted it painted,

and she picked bright pink.”

Baleigh likes pink, but she also picked

the color in honor of the grandmother she

lost to breast cancer.

Orono (Ontario-Canada) resident Wally

Biernacki has attended the show for 20

years. He exhibits his Case traction steam

engine and hand-fed threshing machine in

Canada and the U.S., hoping that more

young people like Baleigh will want to learn

about steam threshers’ historic role in the

farming of yesteryear.

“I love to play with steam,” he said. “We

had a steam traction engine growing up on

our farm. I burned my fingers a lot, but you

learn. It’s a fascinating thing, because you

can run this engine, sit in a room with it,

and hear yourself think. That’s the beauty

of steam - it’s very quiet running.”

Lis Balson, Biernacki’s partner, said,

“Traction engines were the original farm

tractors. Then they developed gas engines.

During World War II there was a lack of

gasoline. Diesel had to go to the war effort,

so traction engines came back into service

and fed the army through WWII.”

Vintage steam equipment paved the way

to today, and the 10-ton Buffalo-Springfield

steam roller owned by Jack Seitz of

Stoutsville drew a crowd. His son, Nate

Seitz, also of Stoutsville, exhibited the

roller.

“I bought this for my dad,” he said. “He

has wanted a steam anything for forever.

This is our first piece of steam equipment.”

Seitz is looking up the history on the

roller. He was told it paved Highway 23

from Chillicothe to Waverly. More recently,

he put it to work when he rolled out a section

of the dirt road near his exhibit spot.

Asa Schreck, MVSTA vice president, appreciated

the smooth road as he drove his

golf cart around the park, assisting exhibitors

and show-goers.

“Do you see how smooth this road is after

they rolled it?” he asked.

And that appreciation for what steam

equipment has done and can do is what

keeps steam aficionados coming back to the

annual show and reunion.

Madison-Plains at

FFA convention

The Madison-Plains High School FFA chapter traveled

to the Ohio FFA Center for the 91st annual FFA

State FFA Convention on May 3.

Once arriving in Columbus, chapter members toured

the Anthony Thomas Chocolate Factory where they

learned about the different equipment and ways to

make various kinds of chocolates and candies. The students

also learned that the company does contract work,

producing brand name chocolate bars for other companies.

At the end of the tour, the students received free

samples and looked through their gift shop.

The group toured the Ohio State University Dairy

Farm, where they learned how the farm manages, feeds

an milks its cows. They also had time to spend with the

farm’s calves.

At the convention, four Madison-Plains students received

their State FFA Degrees: Haylee Henry, Cole

Henry, Lauren Holbert and Mackenzie Wilson. This

year, the Ohio FFA awarded 935 State FFA Degrees to

its members.

Madison-Plains’ 2018-19 treasurer, Alyson Petee,

and secretary, Morgan Rowe, earned gold ratings on

their respective officer books.

Chapter members listened to several motivational

speakers and heard the retiring addresses from several

officers. They also witnessed the installation of the

2019-20 state FFA officer team.
